    Ritz Paris
    Paris
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 612 reviewsTripAdvisor (612)
    Free WiFi

    Located in Paris' 1er arrondissement within walking distance of the Place Vendôme and the Palais Garnier, the historic Ritz Paris invites guests in with its top-notch service and upscale, 18th-century Parisian design. Guest rooms – or apartments, as they're called by this hotel – feature neutral color palettes with gold accents, chandeliers and fireplaces, while standard suites offer additional living space. If you desire views of the surrounding city, upgrade to one of the property's Prestige Suites. Each honors a Parisian landmark, time period or well-known individual. Noteworthy suites include the Suite Impériale, which is listed as a historic monument, and the Suite Coco Chanel, the former Parisian home of the famous designer. After settling into your accommodations, which were part of a nearly four-year renovation of the property that finished in 2016, previous guests recommend grabbing a cocktail in Bar Hemingway or a meal at L'Espadon. You can also take a pastry or gastronomy course through the hotel's cooking school. Or, if you'd rather lounge poolside or relax during a massage, visit the Ritz Club Paris spa. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World, the property participates in the Leaders Club loyalty program.

    Hotel Lancaster
    Paris
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 770 reviewsTripAdvisor (770)
    Free WiFi

    The Hotel Lancaster may be defined by its location on the Champs-Élysées, but guests say there's a lot more to celebrate about this hotel aside from its address. Guests found the staff to be warm and welcoming, the rooms both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing and the food simply superb. Guests also really enjoyed the type of lodging experience the property provided, though others mentioned they could hear outside noise within their rooms. If you're looking to have a more intimate boutique-type of experience (the hotel only has 45 rooms and 11 suites), guests say you'd be hard-pressed to find anything better than the Hotel Lancaster. Rooms here are elegant and eye-catching, featuring fireplaces, classic artwork and sky-high ceilings held up by white walls with gold crown molding. In-room amenities are sparse, featuring only TVs, in-room Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations, but that didn't bother guests much. La Table Du Lancaster is the hotel's fine dining restaurant and despite the high price tags that come with meals, including breakfast, guests who chose to indulge in the experience said it was completely worth it. There is also a fitness center on-site too, but many guests didn't notice. With the Champs-Élysées just a block away, travelers preferred exploring Paris as their exercise of choice.

    Hotel du Palais
    Biarritz
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1340 reviewsTripAdvisor (1340)
    Free WiFi

    The Hôtel du Palais had a royal beginning, as it was originally built in the 1850s as a summer palace for Eugénie de Montijo (the wife of Louis Napoleon, the former president of France's Second Empire). It changed hands in 1883 and has been an emblem of Biarritz luxury ever since, welcoming past guests like Bing Crosby, Charlie Chaplin, Ernest Hemingway and royals like King Edward VII and Queen Victoria, among others. Today, the property boasts its own workshops, where furniture and guest rooms are carefully restored or updated, along with a private beach, the Michelin-starred Villa Eugénie restaurant and the Imperial Spa that spans five floors and features Atlantic Ocean vistas. Guest rooms have high ceilings and white crown molding, large windows with views of the grounds or ocean, king-sized beds and gilded accents. Though several recent guests thought the accommodations could use a refresh, many appreciated the amount of space they offered and the comfortable beds. Several former visitors also recommended upgrading to a junior suite or higher for the best ocean panoramas, while others remarked that the property's prime oceanfront location, lively piano bar and top-notch service were reasons to return here. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World, the property participates in the Leaders Club loyalty program.

    Royal-Riviera Hotel
    Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1006 reviewsTripAdvisor (1006)
    Free WiFi

    Slightly removed from Nice's Port District on the eastern side of Mont-Boron, the Royal-Riviera Hotel offers views of both the mountains and the sea. Guests can choose from standard rooms with mountain views or upgrade for ocean views. Those looking to indulge a bit more can also book a room in the quaint Villa Orangerie, which is separate from the main hotel building. No matter where you decide to hang your hat, you'll find all accommodations outfitted with minibars, flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Outside of the digs, travelers can relax on the private beach with complimentary loungers, take a dip in the outdoor pool, make use of the hotel's water sports equipment or take advantage of the spa treatments and gym in the wellness center. Those traveling with little ones will appreciate the Royal Kid Program that treats children as "VIKs" (very important kids) with age-appropriate amenities like beach toys and kids menus. After working up an appetite, guests can choose from two on-site restaurants and two bars. Travelers especially praise the poolside eatery, Jasmin Grill & Lounge, for its delectable food, efficient service and stunning bay views, though others thought the menu prices were a bit steep.

    Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet's

    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 877 reviewsTripAdvisor (877)
    Free WiFi

    The Hôtel Barrière Le Fouquet's is quintessentially Parisian. Just removed from the Champs-Élysées, the hotel boasts classic French architecture that made recent travelers instantly swoon: wrought iron balconies line cream- and blue-colored baroque facades while bright red awnings shield quaint cafe tables. Rooms are just as elegant, featuring beds with crimson-colored duvets backed by tufted gold walls, rich draperies and classic wood furnishings. Accommodations are made extra comfortable with amenities such as internet access, TVs and minibars. But what guests really appreciated was the size, with standard guest rooms measuring almost 400 square feet. Another highlight was the warm service from the staff, as well as the tasty dining options. Choose between the intimate Le Joy and the chandelier-clad Fouquet's Paris. There are also two bars on-site and wellness facilities, including a spa, a fitness center and an expansive indoor pool. Honeymooners take note: Couples say this hotel is perfect for a romantic getaway. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.
